Maintaining strong, dense, and healthy bones helps ensure a strong foundation for successful aging. Unfortunately, even the most health-conscious individuals often fail to understand the physical and nutritional demands that must be met to maintain bone density throughout life. As we age, there is a significant reduction in bone mineral density and a disruption in bone architecture. This condition is especially common in women.
Optimal bone health requires not only preservation of bone mineral density, but also of bone strength, which results from the dynamic structure of bone involving a matrix of collagen fibers reinforced with calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals. Calcium is the most commonly taken mineral supplement and is available in many different forms. Most calcium supplements contain inferior forms of calcium (typically dicalcium phosphate or calcium carbonate), which are inexpensive, poorly absorbed forms of calcium. Only one type, calcium hydroxyapatite, is actually the form of calcium that naturally occurs in bone.
Osteo-Rx™ is a Hi-Tech Healthcare supplement that contains microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC). This special calcium contains a 2:1 ratio of calcium to phosphorus, which is in the exact ratio formed by the body. Calcium hydroxyapatite also contains trace minerals, delicate organic factors, matrix proteins, glycosaminoglycans, and the full spectrum of minerals that naturally comprise healthy bone. Because hydroxyapatite supplies calcium in the form that it occurs in the body, the calcium can be absorbed rapidly.
Osteo-Rx™ also incorporates ipriflavone, which is a synthetic isoflavone that slows down the action of osteoclasts (bone-eroding cells), allowing the osteoblasts (bone-building cells) to build up bone mass. An osteoclast bone cell removes bone tissue by removing its mineralized matrix through a process called bone resorption. Osteo-Rx™ inhibits osteoclast activity to reduce bone resorption and tip the balance in favor of a net gain in bone mass. Osteo-Rx™ also includes OsteoBlast-4™, which is a bone and joint matrix that is proprietary to Hi-Tech and is a fundamental component of the success of this extraordinary bone product. OsteoBlast-4™ was developed as a molecularly optimized (low molecular weight) ingredient that could easily be absorbed by the body and contains a naturally-occurring matrix of bioavailable sodium hyaluronic acid (10%), chondroitin sulfate (40%), a natural hydrolyzed type II collagen (10%), and 99% pure crystalline glucosamine hydrochloride (40%). The remarkable ingredient formula in Osteo-Rx™ required an equally remarkable delivery system. After studying different delivery systems, it was determined that using a tablet with powdered calcium and utilizing a patented, super disintegration product, like Explotab®, was a better form of delivery than a capsule. With this highly advanced delivery system, the Osteo-Rx™ tablet literally bursts within minutes, which allows for the rapid release of calcium and the other key Osteo-Rx™ nutrients into the bloodstream for enhanced absorption.
We all have the goal of aging gracefully. We aspire to live life to the fullest through the very end of our years. To this end, preventative healthcare supplementation is a first line of defense that should begin early in adult life, which must include protecting our skeletal foundation. Osteo-Rx™ should be a weapon in everyone's arsenal of anti-aging preventative healthcare supplementation to ensure maintenance of healthy bone structure, especially for women who are prone to bone loss.
